Force Proves Ford and Castrol Are Stupid Idiots

NHRA Funny Car Champ John Force faces a dilemma.

His primary sponsors, Castrol and Ford, announced that they were pulling their sponsorships of his teams.  Ford is just plain leaving drag racing.  Castrol, who knows what those goobers are thinking?

Force has been the standard bearer for Ford in drag racing for many years.  No one else has had success in the sport while sporting the Blue Oval.  NHRA is ruled by Chevy in the sportsman ranks.  Ford hasn't had a winner in the pro ranks except Force - at least since Bob Glidden retired from Pro Stock two decades ago.

Castrol - a third rank oil company, wouldn't even be on the map if it weren't for Force carrying their colors for almost three decades now.  Very, very few Americans would have even heard the name if it wasn't for their sponsorship.

Force is fastly approaching retirement age. He's eligible to collect SS benefits.  He's the greatest drag racer in history.  His loud, bombastic personality inspires some, infuriates others, but is never boring, and you never forget him.  The best way for this to have ended would have been for Ford and Castrol to work with him to put on a 'farewell tour'.  Everyone would have benefitted, and the very long term relationships would have ended happily.

Instead, both companies bailed on him mid-season.  He's now looking for sponsorship for his car and his daughter's Top Fuel dragster team.  (His other daughter and son-in-law's funny cars have primary sponsorships already.)

So, Force, rather than feel sorry for himself, gets motivated and wins three National Events in a row.  His victory this past weekend in Las Vegas locked up this year's Funny Car Championship.  Never once, at least in public, has he said "screw you Ford, up yours, Castrol".

This is his SIXTEENTH championship.  Compare that to Petty, or Earnhart, who each won a measly 7 Championships and are both considered legends.

John Force, inspiration to us old folks everywhere.  64 years old, reaction times as good as 'the kids', pilots a 10,000 horsepower car down a 1000ft. track in 4 seconds, enduring 4-5Gs each time he hits the throttle - and still wins Championships!

Blatant Racism ... Isn't It? Part Trey

I'm issuing a call to protest arms for Brother Jackson and Brother Sharpton.  I truly do not understand why they aren't in front of the headquarters of this truly evil, racist organization ...


This commercial plays on two typical racist stereotypes - that black folks are thieves, and addicted to fried chicken.  Here you have a black officer stealing fried chicken from the white officer.  The correct portrayal would be the evil white superior officer stealing from the poor, oppressed black minority officer.  How evil, how racist can you be?  What else would you expect from a company whose mascot is a white, southern Colonel, who obviously was a slave owner.

(Of course, I'm being sarcastic here ... but we've seen more idiotic stuff than this out of the left, haven't we?)

FaceBook - The Rise of the First Galactic Empire

Cue ... menacing Darkside background music from Star Wars ...

Those of you who use FaceBook, I hope you are now aware of this;

Facebook's recent change to its privacy policy is more than that. They are stating, in essence, that anything you post to their site becomes their property, and they will share it with whomever they wish.

As evidence, I tried to share a link to a Fox News story this morning. I have nothing against Fox News, I really do like them. However, a small box appeared stating that Facebook was going to provide the Fox News community with ALL of my account and profile information. I hit the cancel button immediately.

Please presume that anything you post to Facebook is instantly going to become public domain knowledge or property. It doesn't matter that you consider it to be private, or copyrighted, or whatever. You have given it to them by posting it, and you can't un-give it.

For those of you who have been wondering how Facebook makes money, while 'giving' their service away to millions upon millions of people - well here it is. They are selling your private information to whomever will pay for it.


Here are some instructions Steve C forwarded that can cut down a little on what parts of your information are shared ...

Hello to all of you who are on my list of contacts of Facebook. I haven't wanted to do this, but after finding all of my photos located on another site, I would like to ask a favor of you…. You may not know that Facebook has changed its privacy configuration once again. Thanks to the new “Graphic app”, any person on FB anywhere in the world can see our photos, our “likes” and our “comments”. During the next 24 hrs , I am going to keep this message posted and I ask you to do the following and comment “DONE”. Those of my friends who do not maintain my information in private will be eliminated from my list of friends, because I want ...the information I share with you, my friends, to remain among my friends and not be available to the whole world. I want to be able to publish photos of my friends and family without strangers being able to see them, which is what happens now when you choose “like” or “comment”. Unfortunately we cannot change this configuration because FB has made it like this.
1. So, please, place your cursor over my photo that appears in this box (without clicking) and a window will open.
2. Now move the cursor to the word “Friends”, again without clicking and then on “Settings”.
3. UN-check “Life Events” and “Comments and Like”. This way my activity with my family and friends will no longer be made public.
4. Now, copy and paste this text on your own wall (do not “share” it!). Once I see it published on your page, I will UN-check the same.

A Victim Of Ironic Timing

Janice Rene Anthony, 20, of Ft. Worth, pleaded guilty to murdering her 3 year old daughter yesterday.  She received a 35 year sentence.  The young girl was repeatedly beaten, spanked, and choked during her brief, torturous life.

I put forth that it is Anthony herself who is the victim here ... a victim of ironic timing.

You see, if she had murdered her child by aborting it one day before it was born, not only would she not be facing extended prison time, she would be held up as a shining hero by the left.  She would have been a textbook example of perfect womanhood as worshipped by Planned Parenthood and other abortion rights groups.

Blatant Racism ... Isn't It? Part Deaux

Garrick White was convicted of sexual assault and given a 5 year prison sentence.  Mr. White, while 17 years old, coerced a 13 year old girl into giving him oral sex in the back seat of a friend's car, while two other friends watched.  The girl was so young that she didn't really know what oral sex was (according to her testimony), and she did it because they egged her on and said they'd say she was cool to her friends. 

As part of a plea deal that gave him this reduced sentence, White admitted to two other charges of unlawful restraint, where he and his buddies had held girls against their will and had sexual relations with them.

Prosecution introduced evidence that White posted several videos of himself having sex with underage girls, most of whom were incoherent or passed out.  Phone calls recorded while White was awaiting trial showed him bragging that he had gotten three of the girls pregnant.

White's family, friends, and attorney immediately cried racism as soon as they left the courtroom, complaining that the only reason White had been charged was because he is black, and his victim is white.  His mother was quoted as saying "He was railroaded."  White was a member of the local high school football team, and had several scholarships on the table.

Holding this guy accountable for taking advantage of multiple underage girls, kidnap, rape, sexual assault ... yeah, that's got to be racist.

I can just imagine what outrage we'd be hearing from the black community if a white teenage football player had stuck his member into the mouth of a 13 year old black girl, and then we find out he'd been doing it (and worse) repeatedly.  Sharpton and Jackson couldn't get here fast enough, demanding life in prison for such a vicious racist hate crime against their 'sisters'.
